For greenhouse operators in British Columbia and Alberta, deadlines to apply for greenhouse carbon rebates in both provinces are fast approaching.
To take advantage of the Alberta Greenhouse Rebate Program this round, eligible operators need to apply by February 15, 2018. The next round of submissions will start July 1.
Approved operators can receive grants equal to 80% of the carbon levy paid on natural gas and propane for greenhouse heating. Eligible applicants must operate a commercial greenhouse in Alberta with over $20,000 in crop sales over a 12-month period. Vertical farming operations are also eligible.
